Yes I have had mine replaced it is just the silver covers that get replaced. Be sure to check that they do not damage the clips on the black cover that goes on the back side of wheel. They are very wimpy and if they do not line them up just right and try to press them into place they will be ruined and the black back cover will have to be replaced then too.

No bubbles here

I just went out into garage and found no signs of any bubbles. I've had my '06 goat for almost one year and it only has approximately 850miles. This will make vehicle #27 in the 18 years i've been driving. Anyway no bubbles yet.

I noticed bubbles on my steering wheel too. I have developed two of them. Glad to hear that the dealers are replacing them. Does anyone know if the warranty covers them?

Bubbles

Does anyone have the part numbers handy? Is this something we can do with the correct tool? I have bubbles but I am out of warranty now.

Depending on how long you are out of warranty, and the relationship you had with the dealer... try talking to the dealer, maybe you can get them to do a courtesy fix.

You'd have to ask them what kind of took they use I have no idea what it is.

When I had my steering wheel bubbles repaired, the dealership replaced all the buttons, aluminum trim, and the steering wheel rim. They may have replaced the whole steering wheel, alas, I noticed the air bag cover was the same as before I brought the goat to the dealer (I have a tiny scuff on the airbag cover). The new steering wheel rim felt nice though, almost as if I had a brand new car in a weird way.
